Chinese Bookmark

Awwwww, my #student got me this beautiful bookmark for #Christmas. It looks like the Traditional Chinese cut-out #art – with #bamboo leaves and simple window pane style. Love it!

Toad Bellies!

Strange #salad at the steakhouse the other night 😜 Back in #America when I was a kid, we use to blow in the leaves and make ‘#toad bellies’. πŸ˜‚   Had no idea you could #Eat them!!!

#Fire Drill – #China Style!

#Fire drill! #China style! πŸ“£ Because we take your security seriously – we use real #smoke bombs to stink the building up, train you to go through usually locked doors, and ask that you guess when a fire starts because we have no smoke alarms. But you know, security! Β At least now maybe they’ll stop padlocking all the outside doors at night πŸ˜‚

First Scooter Ride

Took my first ever motor Scooter ride today!  Drove about 3 hours out and about. Saw lots of cool things, Including this vegetable garden in front of the public toilet πŸ˜‚
